First seed Rafael Nadal struggled early in his first-round match against German Bjorn Phau. The first set went to a tiebreaker, which Nadal won 7-4. Nadal went on to win the second set, and looked a bit more comfortable as the match progressed.
UPDATE: Nadal prevailed in straight sets, but not until after working through a second tiebreaker in the third set. He moves on to face the winner of the meeting of Ryler De Heart and Olivier Rochus.
